A  further   increase   will be  shown next week.    The force at the  mine has been increased to 45:men.  Pwing, to the1,Victoria shaft being  disabled the ore shipments from the  Granny mines took a   big drop this  lyeek   and : the . operations at   the  smelter have   been   necessarily cur-  tailed., Only five, furnaces .have been  in bla.st and it is possible the battery  will: have   to   be   reduced, to; four.  However, it will;only.be; for a've'ty  short timel as the, new casting for.the  . Victoria hoist should be in  position  in the:course bf a week.  /The    British    Columbia    Copper  company's   shelter   has   been    out  ��/f , cpmmi,ssion , part. of   the   week  as.a result of  the   furnaces   '���freezings" through, it is stated,   the coke  not being up to standard in quality.  Thejfprnaces all went down together,  but a^e expected to, be   in ..commission again shortly.    The mishap has  occurred at av fortunate   time,  how-  ever,   as   the   shipments   from   the  Rawhidcimine, where a new crusher  is    being   installed,   were   nominal.  The hew crusher   will   be   in   operation next week.      A new office has  just been completed at the Rawhide,  replacing the one recently destroyed  by fire.

Presented above is the assayer's report of the first shipment to hand which sp eaks eloquence for quality and quantity, and a special train was chartered with bodyguard to  convey it to Phoenix. The silver was "stoped" out by the  Phoenix representatives whose names appear above. The  greater part of the silver was secured at the Golden City of  British Columbia, which is justly famous for its precious  metals. The process of mining, milling and refining is  given in further detail below.  Seldom has a hockey team  or ski I of having played eleven games this  club returned with  a more triumph-) season without defeat.     They have  also scored a total of 79 goals in the  eleven games while but 40 have been  scored against them.  Intimation was given last week of  the early   successes   of the   hockey  team, Phoenix defeating Greenwood  5 goals to 4 in what  was   admitted  to be the fastest hockey ever played  in the province.    This placed Phoenix in the finals with   Rossiand   for  the British Columbia championship.

To be invincible in one or two  events might be expected, to be invincible in each and all ofthe several competitions entered is certainly  a record.

As a  result, the remaining  items on,the  . order paper are being attacked with  noteworthy   energy,   and,'  the- an-  nouncement is made that   Wednes-  day, the 1st of March,   will   witness  prorogation.,,'-. .Of .the  government  -measures, of the year yet to be given  the\force arid effect of law, the most  important is that for the   regulation  of Trust companies which   is���to   be  brought down by gubernational mes-  sage , on   Tuesday - or Wednesday  ��� next, and the bdl for formal confirm-  atio'ri of 'the consolidated and revised  Provincial' statutes ,��� an .imposing  work "in/three   volumes   which the  House ��will undoubtedly most gladly  �� take as read.

(The  Budget proved certainly a more  cheering valentine: for Miss British  Columbia.   The Minister announced  i  that the liquid assets   of the   Prov-  ince   would   be  sufficient   within a  year to   wipe out the  entire funded  debt at the close of last year stood at  $8,616,800, having decreased $238,  867,000   from   the . last    previous  twelve-month period.     At the same  time, as provision is being made by  sinking fund for the  redemption of  the debt in due course, the Minister  does not consider it good   financial  policy to buy back outstanding debentures, as an attempt on the open  rnoney market would send these securities above par and the  Province  would be loser by   the   transaction.  Even-at'present  British   Columbia  inscribed stock stands comparatively  on   the   London   market   than   any  1 < f< I "���    ' J  other'colonial  securities.   .The sur  plus   for   the   fiscal    year    ending  March,   1910,   the' Minister  in his  maiden   deliverance   placed at   $2,-  500,000.

Another pending  measure provides for the recognition  hereafter of the responsible head of  the.'; Department  of  Lands   by the  common title of <MinisterJn'. this behalf, instead of-Chief;Coriirnissioner  1���the use of that-designation having  in.recent years produced much vexatious and wholly unnecessary  con-:  fusion.    Just, why   the   member of  the government adriiinistrating this  important portfolio should have been,  known .as Chief Commissioner, and  all his colleagues as Ministers of the  Crown unquestionably   has   puzzled,  more than a few good citizens.   The  explanation is that in the first  gov-,  ernment after Confederation and the  consequent   reconstruction   of   the  provincial machinery, the gentleman]  administering      this >  .department!  chanced to be the   Lands  Commissioner   of   the   colonial   days, and!  hence the preservation   of the  title  the special significance of which has,  long since disappeared..,-. !  ��� As outstanding features of the  week just past, the conclusion ofthe  Budget debate and the adoption .tof  the House resolution proposed by  Deputy Speaker Hay ward and denunciatory   of the   Reciprocity Ar-  mated, but the Minister expects it  will be quite as large as last year's,  the Government having,at the pre-  sent time upon deposit in the various  chartered , banks, aud. bearing  terest, no less than $7,500,000.

Hngen   and An-;  drew Stenwald were gathering in all  the principal   prizes jn   ski   events,  dividing the honors   between  themselves.     Stenwald won ihe i'% mile  race   in   2   miutes  and   10 seconds;  Engen being second in  1.14.      The  seven mile race   had  three   entries.  They   started   off at   three   minute  intervals, Servold leaving  at 10.52,  Stenwald went off second and Engen  third.     Very early in the   race   Servold was passed.   It was not thought  any good time  would   be   made   on  account of the deep, soft snow making the   going  very   heavy,   but; to  everybody's surprise Stenwald completed the  distance   in   exactly one  hour and   Engen   was   only   half  a  minute longer.     Servold was about  20 minutes   after the  second   man.  For the record ski jump  Engen was  a:n easy  winner   with several   competitors,   but Jthe  course   was   too  |low for good jumping.  :; The sensation of the  ski  events,  and in.:fact ofthe  carnival  was the  jumping of Engen on Saturday afternoon.  Five entered the contest, three  from  Phoenix and 2 from Rossiand,  but Engen   was the hero.    With a  jump of 113 j5_ feet he not only-outdistanced his competitors but smashed  all past records  of ski jumping at  Rossiand by  12^_  feet.     Before he  !i(ad alighted the spectators  realized  that it would be  a  record-breaking  carnival manager, read a ,<telegram  from" Mayor Matheson congratulating the hockey boys oh their success,.guaranteeing the safekeeping  of the silverware, which he thought  would'find a' permanent home in  Phoenix: t Prolonged; f.cheering rent  the air and the puck was soon on the  move.      '  Saunders" opened the' proceedings  in the score.column   for,Pfioenix in  a very few   minutes   from the start,  and    indeed,  the   irresistible   rover  landed 4 ofthe 8 goals.   The visitors  got',a 'lead '.of-three -goals 'before  Rossiand   found   the  net,   and    the  latter put on   a   second   before   the  end ofthe first period.    The second  period started very brisk, but Phoenix never lost its Jead, though Rossiand pressed hard and found the net  occasionally, the curtain being rung  down    with    the   balance   8   to   6.  Phoenix, however/played more consistent hockey and there   was not a  voice but that, admitted   the   better  team had won. >  Again the Phoenix fans swarmed  on the ice and carried the players  to the dressing room, the team returning to the ice later to receive  the medals.

International Cup  centered the >table, with   finest   refresh-  ments, and Phoenicians made merry.  The   Phoenix  special    train, left  Rossiand at 1 a.m. with the boosters  and  the  hockey  players   remained  for a   day's   rest.     The' boosters  found an equally enthusiastic following at home on their return and Sunday afternoon  an  enthusiastic  citizens* meeting was held to arrange a  welcome for the champions'  homecoming, a score of committees being  appointed.  , The Home Welcome  A more pretentious demonstration  has never been attempted in the  Boundary district than that which  welcomed hon the undefeated  hockey champions Monday evening.  AH day long committees had been  busy, the city was in holiday attire,  and   preparations   were   complete.  Twenty-one    dynamite    explosions  were set off as a royal salute   while  the gaily decorated Great  Northern  passenger,   drew'  into  the  station,  and torpedoes had been placed along  the track for a considerable distance.  The whole town was at the depot to  take part in the welcome, the  players being carried  to  the   Brooklyn  hotel balcony, where Mayor Matheson gave  an   address  of welcomeT  The hockeyists and ski winners were  then   entertained   at   a   dinner  at  the Brooklyn by  the  city  council.  After the dinner hundreds  marched  in a torchlight procession which was  headed  by  the  city   band   and   a  gorgeous   float   decked    with   the  trophies and conveying the winners.  The route from the Brooklyn via the  Central hotel to Granby street  was  lit  with  colored  lights and fusees  and fireworks   were  exploded continuously.  Smoker and Dance  The smoker and dance tendered  the champions in the Miners' Union  hail Thursday evening was another  record breaker from every standpoint.   Some 250 gentlemen attend-  ' ed tbe smoker while  the  ladies at  the dance numbered 100.  The smoker was held in the lodgeroom .upstairs with Judge Williams  ! as chairman.    A varied program of  ��� music,   vocal    selections,,   boxing,  . dancing specialties and speech making continued for a couple of hours  and provided an enjoyable  evening,  sandwiches and refreshments  being  passed around.  The large dance hall was a scene  of gaiety where the hundred couples  enjoyed the "poetry of music" until  the early morn. Werner's orchestra  provided splendid music. The  hockey and ski silverware were  handsomely displayed at the end of  the hall.  Nelson Fails to Appear  t Perhaps the most regrettable incident in connection with the  land carnival was the failure of the  Nelson hockey team to meet Phoenix. Every hockey fan was looking  forward to the game; Phoenix went  to Rossiand to meet,Nelson���and to  beat them too���but the much-talked  -of Patricks, Bishops and company  tarried. The Daily News which has  flaunted the Nelson aggregation day  in and day out swallows itself in an  attempt to explain why Nelson failed  to meet Phoenix at Rossiand, but  the reasons are entirely too flimsy,  and the Daily News should supply  quitters with mustard rather than  niake itself a laughing-stalk for  readers.  .Certain trophies are offered at the  Rossiand carnival "each ,year for  hockey competition and every team  in the province has a chance to play  tor'them,   under  certain   rules   laid  down by the carnival committee.  Nelson had the same opportunity as  Phoenix to attend the carnival with  the advantage of being considerably  nearer which would result in less  loss of time; they knew the conditions just as well as Phoenix did but  failed to appear and no amount of  explaining can disqualify the facts.  Some  weeks  ago  Nelson  wired  Phoenix  hockeyists   inviting  them  over for a  game.    Phoenix   would  have readily accepted only they had  scheduled  games in the Boundary  league every week, and the tiresome  trip to Nelson and  possibly  a  stiff  game might have left them out  of  condition for a league game, while  Nelson  had nothing at stake.    Insinuations were hurled at  Phoenix,  but  when   the   test   came   Nelson  caved  and   the   insinuations   re-act  Ross- on the show-window septette.  But Phoenix assured Nelson that  they would meet them at the Ross-  land carnival. 'Phoenix was there  and Nelson failed to appear���and the  reason is not far to seek.
